WMP12 won't add/show music

by Slasher / October 25, 2009 10:18 PM PDT

I have Windows 7 Ultimate running Windows Media Player 12 (with all updates) and it refuses to display music files in the library. It shows videos and pictures perfectly.
I have made sure that the music library (when viewed from Windows Explorer) has my music and I have made sure that WMP is scanning the music library. WMP seems to update my music files (it says "receiving media info for blah") from online but only the 3 sample songs are shown.

Any ideas? Maybe deleting the database? I tried to find it but couldn't.

I have reinstalled WMP through add/remove Windows components.

I'm only using WMP until MediaMonkey sorts out its issues and works properly on W7.
